This blog post is designed to help you answer the The Most Frequently Asked Questions that students and visitors ask about my online freight broker and freight agent training program.

11 MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- How much can a freight broker / freight agent make?
- How much does the training cost?
ANSWER: NEW PRICING > Gold membership is 1 year and is only $185. Platinum lifetime membership is one time investment of $389. This is a one time investment, so you will NOT be charged monthly. As a matter of fact we do not retain any of your payment info so if you choose to renew after six months you will have to re-enter your payment info. See details at https://www.freightbrokerbootcamp.com/gold-platinum/
- Do you offer support for students?
ANSWER: Yes of course we do! Support is handled through our online administrative support desk. If your question can not be handled online we will arrange a time to contact you via phone.
Support hours are 9 am – 3 pm EST Mon-Fri (Minus holidays)
Please allow 24/48 business hours for us to respond.
- Why is FreightBrokerBootcamp.com so much less expensive than other freight broker training programs?
ANSWER: My training is much cheaper because #1 it is an online training where you operate at your own pace versus a classroom training lead by a live instructor. #2 I have been fortunate in my life with several successful business ventures and I don’t need to charge you $1,000-$5,000. 🙂
- How much does a freight broker surety bond cost?
ANSWER: The cost of a freight broker surety bond can vary from 1-4% for people with average to excellent credit. If you have below average credit it does not mean you can’t get your bond, it just means it could cost you more until you build up a good history with the bonding company. NOTE: Freight Agents are NOT required to have freight broker surety bond or authority because they will be operating under the authority of a licensed broker.
We will provide you information on the top Freight Broker Surety Bond companies as a part of our training.
- Where do I get customers?
- Will you hire me or provide job placement after taking your course?
ANSWER: No…who wants a “job?” Our system is designed to take the “j-o-b” out of the equation and prepare you for self-employment by teaching you how to create work for yourself. In fact, you’ll learn how to reach for the other end of the spectrum by leveraging and multiplying your efforts.
*There are over 15,000 licensed freight brokers in the U.S. so if your interested in becoming a freight agent it really shouldn’t be difficult to find a broker to get started with. If you become a student we will certainly share with you the best and easiest way
to find a good broker to work with!
- Can I do this part time?
ANSWER: Yes, as a business owner you will make your own schedule. After all you are the boss! One of the greatest parts about this business is the fact that all you need is a phone and the internet to be in business, so as long as you have those two things you can do business whenever and where ever you want!
- What is factoring?
- Can I share my training account with my partner?
ANSWER: Technically you could, but it’s not recommended. As a member of my site you are purchasing 1 license to access the training. Our system tracks the number of IP addresses used to access the account and may temporarily disable an account it feels is “abusing” the system. The good news is, as a member you are able to download and/or print most of the information for sharing with your spouse or partner.
- Does the training include the forms and contracts needed to get started?
ANSWER: Yes we include access to all the forms and contracts you will need to become a freight broker or freight agent. This feature alone is worth well over $500 without the training!
